filter. they would find ways to go around the press. >> bill clinton went on "larry king" and mtv and we complained that he was -- >> the problem is that rachel maddow and those who say this is no big deal, they are enabling the next guy to be even worse. >> did rachel maddow get a private audience with the president? >> exactly right. >> that's outrageous that statement from her, howie. i think that is outrageous. >> no one, yeah, we do care a rats, but we care ten rats about that. >> she was putting it in the form of a question. should the public care whether or not journalists have access to some of these more routine events? bill, you're making the point, it's not just a golf game he could fall and break his leg or whatever. but at the same time, i think to a lot of folks, let's be honest here, looks like self-interested pleading on the part of the white house press corps. >> this is not as much about us as it is about what the public gets to know and who tells them. the white house can tell them, but do you always trust the white house or do you want a somewhat disinterested outs

"reliable sources." >>> from the moment hillary clinton and barack obama sat down for that love fest on "60 minutes" she has been on an all-out media blitz with some folks practically begging her to run in 2016. >> if in the course of the next couple of years it appears, as it does appear right now, that you might be the person who could actually break through that glass ceiling and become the first female president of this country. would you feel a certain obligation to seize that mantle? >> are journalists going way too easy on the former secretary of state? >>> hger aldo rivera says he ma run for the u.s. senate. i'll tell you why i'm not buying it. >>> the white house takes the unusual step in putting out this photo of obama skeet shooting at camp david, just like he said. did the media mockery miss the target. >>> are network sportscasters part of the hypomachine that builds our interest in the big games? >> they might as well start the pregame the week before and just keep it going and then do a week-long post game. >>> and -- >> coming up next, a first look at the commercials you'll

here to tell you hillary clinton broke the law in paris. as evidenced by this picture. former french first lady carla bruni was a scofflaw, too. laura bush also a violator of parisian law. angela merkel likes to take the french to task, but she could have found herself in parisian hot water, as well. their crime? wearing pants. you see, for more than 200 years it has actually technically been illegal for a woman to wear trousers in paris unless official permission was granted. it seems that during the french revolution the lady revolutionaries took to wearing pants and the powers that be at the time wanted to put a swift end to that. so they made it illegal in 1800. amendments came over the years allowing women to dare to wear trousers for riding bikes or horses. but the law remained on the books until this week, when it was repealed by the minister for women's rights. the correct answer to our "gps" chall question was a, richard iii was a plantagenets. that dynasty ruled over britain from 1216 with henry iii until august 1485, when richard iii was killed at the battle of bosworth at

. i mean, we've been here before. >> tleferance, of course, made to bill clinton's 1997 state of the union which was split screen. okay, local story jane hall, national attention. why is that? >> well, i think some people try to portray him as some sort of rob robinhood and while we're in the midst of a serious debate of gun control that amount of coverage glorified this man publishing his manifesto. i agree with frank, newspapers won't have to choose as much as cable does. they can split the screen. if they had split the screen, they would have been saying christopher dorner, a murderer, is equal to the state of the union address by the president of the united states. that would have been pretty awful. >> although in the hours before president obama spoke, a lot of split screen and paul farhi is there an argument that the shootout, the manhunt, the fire was actual news whereas the hours before the state of the union is pregame chatter? >> i think you could probably argue that there was a public safety issue here. there is a guy running around with a gun who has killed three people.
